Here they are enjoying their beautiful Frozen Fractals paintings…apparently fractals are yummy! 🙂
Frozen Fractals Ice Art
Containers to freeze water in-(I used silicone muffin cups and small glass dishes)
Small bowls for paint
1. Fill containers with water but remember to leave room at the top because the water will expand when frozen. If you want, feel free to add some food coloring and sprinkles to your water (I’m sorry, I forgot to take a picture of this step).
We had some ice blocks that where frozen overnight and they worked the best. I made the muffin cup ice the same day and they would have lasted longer if they had been solid ice and not mushy in the middle. I even put a few ice cubes in the water when I was making them to try and freeze them faster.
2. To make the paint, put 2-3 Tbs. of corn syrup in a bowl or muffin tin for as many colors of paint you want to make, then and add food coloring and stir.
3. Give kids ice, paint, paint brushes and let them create! Isn’t it beautiful how the colors swirl together on top of the ice?
